    I hope this isn't considered to be in poor taste, but I have noticed that Pete is sometimes absent from the podcast due to health related issues.

    Is there some sort of chronic health problem that Pete lives with?

    Since the podcast is upfront about why Pete is sometimes absent (health/illness) I assume that Pete isn't trying to keep anything secret...

    If I were Pete and I had a cold I would take the week off knowing that there's plenty of other people who can handle doing the podcast and do a killer job, instead of going feeling not 100% and maybe getting others sick.

    I get that. I only ask because I like Pete and wish him the best.

    I think a lot of it is normal cold and flu stuff from what has been posted/said. You also have to consider that the show is generally taped in a studio in his house (or in some addition to his house), so if he is sick (contagious), then people can't always come over and tape a show (versus if someone else on the podcast were sick).

    This is a pretty personal question, huh?

    Obviously, which is why I phrased the question the way I did.

    I haven't listened to the podcast for as long as some people, so I thought that maybe I missed something.

    I certainly don't mean to pry or to seem pushy. The only reason I ask is because when Pete is out someone on the show always gives a vague reason like "for health reasons", which makes me worry about him. I hope it is nothing, but I thought if it were *something*, then maybe he has talked about it before and someone could fill me in.

    I'd just like to say that I thought the question was phrased very respectfully. Maybe I, myself, would not have asked it, but I do believe it was asked in a respectful manner, and out of genuine curiosity and concern.

    I'm sure that @WebmasterPete appreciates that listeners are concerned for his health. I've been a listener for a really, really long time and I've always found him to be forthcoming about any issues (health and otherwise) in his life.

    Pete’s fine and in good health. Traveling, running a business, doing the podcast and taking care of your mother give you an occasional sick day or two ;)

    I think Pete suffers from a condition called Nunya.

    Man, people are so sensitive in this thread.

    To the OP, I was thinking the same thing. Hope he's doing alright.
